At the first meeting of 2019 held on 5 February, members of Carnoustie Social-Eyes welcomed Hong Zhang, Communities Officer, by wishing her a Happy Chinese New Year.
Hong gave a presentation on the work carried out by the Communities Team and the support it gives to the Carnoustie, Monifieth and Sidlaws areas.
Following her presentation, Hong chatted with the members over coffee about her Chinese background, and the ‘Year of the Pig’.
On 7 January, members and their sighted guides enjoyed their second visit to the V&A Dundee. Previously the described tour was of the ‘Ocean Liners: Speed and Style’ exhibition. On this occasion, the subject of the described tour was ‘The Architecture and Building’.
The next meeting of Carnoustie Social-Eyes – the only independent group in Angus for Blind and Partially Sighted People, will be held on Tuesday 5 March 2019. New members are welcome.
